My D-i-L sent this to me.. can't help but laugh...

Following are 20 more ways that taking care of a toddler is like dealing with a drunk person. What would you add to this list?

No personal boundaries
Falls over A LOT. Gets up, yells “I OK!” and keeps going
Poor decision making skills
Spontaneous vomiting
Speaks gibberish
Gets belligerent if you take away their beer [insert favorite toy here]
Cries for no apparent reason
Streaking (see #3)
Philosophical conversations with inanimate objects
Short attention span
Argumentative
Poor short term memory
Zero inhibitions
Loses everything
Will pass out anywhere
One track mind
Demanding
Getting them undressed (or redressed) is like wrestling an alligator
Runs into things that haven’t moved…ever
One volume setting – LOUD!

My 6 month old will stare at his hand for several minutes and he looks exactly like some stoners I know. He's at the sitting up on his own stage and he wobbles around like me after too many beers.

That list sure looks familiar to me. Just last night I was saying how I can't believe that even at 2 my daughter can run around naked in front of people she just met and not care. My wife was trying to get her ready for a bath when my friends were there.

They haven't had that shame programmed in yet. My kids tend to be school age before this is an issue - which always makes it fun to have company over.

The funny thing is, there's actually a neurological basis for a lot of this. When you chuck drunks and three-year-olds into MRI machines, there are apparently many similarities. We should all remember that when trying to argue with toddlers.
